Now I was just told the opposite. They said I can but the %50 off Windows 7 upgrade version and it will work just fine with Windows 7RC. WTF?

Here is what was in my e-mail this morning:

"You've been using Windows® 7 for a while now, and we hope you've been enjoying a simpler PC experience. Because you've been a loyal Windows customer, we're offering you the Windows 7 upgrade at a great introductory price* - only $49.99 for Home Premium or $99.99 for Professional. It's our way of saying thanks for trying it out. To take advantage of this deal, pre-order your copy while supplies last."

So I guess I can buy this and it up make my copy of Windows 7RC a retail version.

The real question is whether or not you can do a clean install from an upgrade disc. My Vista Ultimate disc is an "upgrade" disc but I've only ever done a clean install with it.

If it works the same way that would be fabulous.

Default Re: Microsoft Outlines Windows 7 Pricing, Upgrade Options

Well I called again LMAO! And this time they said I will not be able to buy W7 Upgrade and use it to upgrade my W7RC. I do have a copy of XP and I can use it that way. Microsoft needs to get people who know what they are talking about so they can help stupid people like me who have no idea what they are talking about lol.

They told me that you can do a clean install from the upgrade disc. BUT from the help ans misinformation I have been getting from Microsoft I would triple check on that.

Default Re: Microsoft Outlines Windows 7 Pricing, Upgrade Options

I'm so damn confused now. I just called for the 6 time and now they say even though I have a copy of XP I will not be able to use the Windows 7 upgrade. They said I need to buy the full version of Windows 7. What is the heck is going on over there?

Microsoft can kiss my ass. I stupidly bought Vista Ultimate (waste of money). I'd upgrade to 7 ultimate IF the upgrade was available as part of the half-off pre-order program, but it's not. I suppose I could settle for 7 professional for $99, the only problem is, since have Vista Ultimate installed, I'd have to wipe my vista install and start over to "upgrade" from Vista Ultimate to 7 Pro (and lose access to features I paid for in Vista Ultimate in the process). **** 'em, that's too much work for what amounts to an expensive service pack with a tweaked GUI (and it's only tweaked so MS can say "hey, it's really not Vista, we promise. See, it looks different!"). From the bit I've played around with the RC, I don't see anything that compelling, some mouse gestures and a new taskbar... yay. Oh, and some kernel improvements (like reduced memory usage) that really should be put into Vista as a service pack, but hey, it's microsoft, you have to pay for anything that's much more than a security fix.

Microsoft is basically giving anyone who bought Vista the finger (esp Ultimate users), basically saying "hey, thanks for paying to let us experiment on you, now **** you very much, but you would have been much better off, and saved a lot of money, if you'd stuck with XP. Have a nice day!"

MS is making a PR nightmare for itself when Apple OS upgrades are $29, with 5 licenses for $50. If only Apple would clean up their act a bit and open their platform more (so the system could get cheaper), I think a lot of MS users would start switching in droves.
